Episode 210 – Carolyn Strauss – Home Shopping

Carolyn Strauss (@CarolynStrauss on twitter) joins host Craig Price to discuss her experiences and what she learned partnering with the Home Shopping Network. While Craig has known Carolyn for a few years, he never asked her on because she was a bit too well known. Why would she come on his little old podcast?  When she offered to come on, Craig leapt at the chance. It wasn’t just because she is a world class designer and businesswoman with vast experience running a multimillion dollar apparel company. There was also the bonus of getting some serious street cred with the women in his life. Particularly his wife and both mother and mother-in-law!

The two chat about a wide variety of things including how she transitioned from model to designer, pitching products to HSN, dealing with live caller interactions, why value-per-minute is just as important in non-sales positions and a bunch more. A fun interview that peeks behind the scenes at the goings-ons of a shopping channel and how stunned Craig is by the power of these channels.

Episode 180 – Jennifer Kahnweiler PhD – Introverts

Jennifer Kahnweiler Phd. (@jennkahnweiler on twitter) joins host Craig Price to discuss introverts. For many people, introverts are a mystery. They tend to stay away from crowds and enjoy time alone. Yet, they are also highly effective leaders, workers and team members that can be invaluable to an organization.

Mostly though it’s really just an excuse to stay home with his dogs and nap.
